I wrote this poem to introduce the song “Faith” in The Cowboy Cabaret. Surprisingly, I’m still not fond of the way that I play it, and it has never actually made it into a performance. This poem really has nothing to do with the song other than sharing the word “faith”, but I thought I’d share it.
I’m currently culling and populating my song pages on this site, and I don’t think that “Faith” is going to make the cut. Nevertheless, it’s a sweet poem so I thought someone should enjoy it even if it never gets performed.
This life can be full of doubts.
It can also be surprising.
But it shouldn’t be a wonder
every morning when the sun is rising
that life is here to provide for us
on our own individual adventures.
You just got to have a little faith in life.
To enjoy the ride, just surrender.
